Motion 1 from Councillor Tara Deacy

I note that 220 trees are being planted in the South East Area during 2020.  I seek support from this committee to ensure the areas of Kimmage and Crumlin be attended to in terms of a tree planting programme, especially the streets of Captain's Road, Stannaway Road and surrounding streets?  Currently many of the streets are almost entirely tree-less: in stark contrast to other areas, there are just a few in place (some of them not in great condition); and in many other cases, the square-shaped hole within the footpath in which trees previously grew has, depressingly, been filled in with concrete.  In short, the streets are very grey and sorely lacking in decent greenery and canopy.  Can areas like this where tree planting has been low be prioritized as a matter of urgency?


Motion 2 from Councillor Tara Deacy

That this committee agree and support the views of residents from the Kimmage / Crumlin community that Crumlin Swimming Pool opening hours be extended.  This is a crucial public service that is not being utilised fully and is causing huge frustrations for residents.  The hours at present are not adequate and must be addressed.


Motion 3 from Councillor Dermot Lacey

This Committee requests an update on the Sandymount Traffic Calming Plan.


Motion 4 from Councillor Mary Freehill

That we receive a report to the February meeting regarding my motion unanimously agreed some months ago proposing that blockages be placed on sections of Mount Argus Road to prevent illegal parking.  Furthermore we need to get a report from the clampers to know why they are not responding to residents’ requests particularly on Sunday mornings.   There is a very serious problem on this road both when residents cannot access and egress along with not being able to access their driveways.


Motion 5 from Councillor Mary Freehill

That the footpath on Cowper Road beside the entrance to Cowper Downs be dished to facilitate people who have a disability.   Noting that this is the route to the LUAS and also has McGeogh Senior Citizens’ homes, many of whose residents shop in Upper Rathmines Road.


Motion 6 from Councillor Dermot Lacey

This Committee requests a full report on the circumstances leading to the report that Merrion Strand would be closed for swimming and more importantly a comprehensive report on what actions will be taken to ensure that this is not the case for any prolonged period.


Motion 7 from Councillor Dermot Lacey

This Committee requests an update on plans to upgrade or resurface Morehampton Terrace, Donnybrook which is in a very bad condition.


Motion 8 from Councillor Dermot Lacey

This Committee requests a report from the Manager on when action will be taken to clear the significant overgrowth in the area running parallel from the side of 30 Sandymount Avenue along Hollyrood Park and why no such works have been undertaken in recent years.


Motion 9 from Councillor Anne Feeney

That this Committee requests the Traffic Department to address  ...  view the full agenda text for item 7.
